Whether you are an avid follower of art in the streets or just beginning to notice all the public delights, the Welling Court Mural Project will leave you smiling. Come see this groundbreaking street art project up close and personal and dialogue with the organizers, artists, and residents that help make it all happen. Celebrating the streets, solidarity, community, and culture, this is one of the best collections of contemporary street on earth, representing over 50 years of artists working in the public sphere, all within this hidden gem of NYC!
Now in its seventh year, the project continues to meld a spectacular crew of legendary artists together with a fresh mix of emerging talents from around the block and around the world! Free and open to the public 24/7/365. With many arms our reach is wide; one mural at a time; forever we are one!
Sat & Sun Tour Info: Ad Hoc Art's co-founder and director, Garrison Buxton, will lead tours at 11am, 2, and 4:30pm on both days.
For Kids: Kids and adults love checking out street art, and they also love making stickers! Sticker Social Club will be leading sticker-making sessions throughout the day where kids and adults of all ages can create and walk away with their own stickers!
Access Notes: As this is a walking tour of a public art project in the streets, bring comfortable shoes, clothing appropriate to the weather, and whatever food and beverage you need to stay energized & hydrated. There are several locations in the neighborhood to buy tasty food and beverages. As with most of NYC, restrooms are available in local establishments with patronage.
